Fettuccine Alfredo

Fettucine Alfredo AND A Lagostina Martellata Hammered Copper Pastaiola Set Giveaway!!

I was recently sent the most amazing and beautiful Lagostina Martellata Hammered Copper Pastaiola Set. You can’t beat food blogger perks! The pot I have always cooked my pasta in has most definitely seen better days. I was so excited to cook pasta in my new pastaiola set and to retire my old pasta pot.

In honor of national pasta day (October 17, 2016), Lagostina would like to offer one of my readers one of these beautiful Lagostina Martellata Hammered Copper Pastaiola Sets for their very own!! See the bottom of this post for details. Good Luck!!

Fettucine Alfredo AND A Lagostina Martellata Hammered Copper Pastaiola Set Giveaway!!

My son loves alfredo sauce but I’ve never tried making it before so I decided to give it a try. I used an America’s Test Kitchen recipe for alfredo sauce and it did not disappoint. To be honest, I’ve never been disappointed in their recipes. The sauce took only about 15 minutes to make and it was rich, creamy, and so decadent. I cooked some fettuccine in my new copper pastaiola set and it was perfectly cooked. I loved how durable and well made both the coppered pot and the steel strainer are, and I absolutely loved the convenience of the removable strainer. It was so much easier to deal with than trying to pour hot boiling water into a colander in my sink and made no mess. Not only is this pastailoa set incredibly well made and solid, but it is also absolutely stunning too. I love having beautiful quality pieces of cookware that will last forever and this pot is no exception.

How to Make Fettuccine Alfredo

Heat one cup of the heavy cream and butter in a heavy saucepan over medium-low heat until at a simmer. Simmer for 12-15 minutes, stirring often, until it has reduced to about 2/3 cup. Remove from the heat and add the remaining 1/2 cup heavy cream. Stir to combine then season with a bit of sea salt and freshly cracked pepper, to taste along with a pinch of freshly grated nutmeg.

While the cream is reducing, heat water in the Lagostina Martellata Hammered Copper Pastaiola Set until boiling. Season the water with sea salt then add the fettuccine; cook per instructions until just shy of al dente. Drain, reserving 1/4 cup of pasta water.

Meanwhile, return the cream mixture to a simmer over medium-high heat; reduce heat to low then add the drained pasta and the parmesan cheese. Cook over low heat, tossing the pasta with tongs to combine until the cheese is melted, the sauce has coated the pasta, and the pasta is al dente, 1-2 minutes. Stir in the reserved cooking water, if needed. Set aside to allow to thicken for 1-2 minutes. Toss again then serve in warmed bowls so the sauce stays nice and creamy. Season with a bit more freshly cracked black pepper. Enjoy.

    What a beautiful pot! Besides spaghetti I’d love to use it to make gumbo. It’s getting cold and that means gumbo weather here in Louisiana.

    1. I would love to make a seafood pasta and invite my family over for dinner then in the winter months I would make chili and soups.This is a quality pot that I would love to own for many years to come…

  2. 5 stars
    Omg!! I would love this to make my homemade ravioli….or noodles for my shrimp scampi. Oh thanks for the giveaway, I’m dreaming of possibilities now!!

  3. Looks very good. My son also loves Alfredo, nor have I ever tried making it. I think I will tonight, even without the pot.
    Thanks for sharing.
    😉

  4. 5 stars
    I have so many Italian recipes that I love! At this moment in time I’m thinking the first Italian dish recipe I would make in the pot would be Spaghetti alla Carbonara!!

  5. Let’s see… So many yummy pasta recipe options to choose from. I think I would make homemade mac ‘n’ cheese! Thank you! This copper pot is lovely!

  6. Homemade ravioli. It’s been a while but this pot with the strainer insert would definitely make things easier

  7. I would make a pot of my cheese soup. I’ve also been looking for a copper pot to make caramels in, so I would try that too.

  8. 5 stars
    That pot is gorgeous! I would use it to make bucatini with amatriciana sauce. It’s one of my favorite dishes I ate while living in Italy!

  9. I’d make your Fettucine Alfredo in that beautiful pot. In fact, I’m gonna make it even without the pot!

  10. I would definitely start with this recipe, and then maybe some spaghetti or a rigatoni dish and then some tortellini. I LOVE PASTA!!!

  11. That pot looks so pretty.I would definitely make some pasta primavera.Your recipes are great & love your food photography

  12. 5 stars
    One of my favorite pasta dishes is oven baked macaroni and cheese. I can’t resist that top layer of golden brown cheese. That is the first thing I would make.

  13. Rather than reduce the cream, I add a well whipped egg, heat the cream in the pasta pot while the fettucini drains, and then toss it all together. Either way, it’s delicious! You could just let me win the pot for my birthday….only kidding! Your alfredo sauce looks delicious, Pam!

  14. If I were fortunate enough to win this fabulous pot, the first dish I would make using it would be Orecchiette d’Abruzzo.

  15. 5 stars
    I posted a great recipe but I think it got rejected so I’m trying again. Angel hair pasta, spinach, portobello mushrooms, red onions, and cherub tomatoes will make a great meal for one. Especially in such an awesome pot!

  16. Wow…you took me back to a New York diner that I had the most delicious Fettucine Alfredo! They added chicken breast to theirs and it was amazing! I would definitely try that on this beautiful pot!

  17. Gorgeous pot! Great sounding alfredo also. I know its for pasta, which it would be perfect for, but I’ve been wanting to do steamed clams. This pot would be perfect for those also.

  18. 5 stars
    Oh My…what a gorgeous Pan!! I’d love to make Ham & Bean Soup or maybe Chicken & Dumplings in this beauty! Thanks so much for this chance!

  19. 5 stars
    That was so delicious. I must pin this to try it ASAP. If I were to win I would definitely make a homemade pasta carbonara first. It’s a favorite of mine!

  20. 5 stars
    First thing I would make would be some homemade Mexican chicken tortilla soup. Next I would make a nice home style Texas chili. Right after that I would make some Spanish arroz con pollo from scratch. Can’t wait! 🙂

  21. I have this really good gluten free pasta that I would love to see how well it turns out using these pans.

  22. Ooh I’d make homemade spaghetti or try a that delicious fettuccine recipe you just gave us as the first dish I would try, if I won this amazing pot set!

  23. 5 stars
    That pot looks beautiful!! I would love to make caldo de Rez… which is a Mexican soup made with oxtails …yum yum!!

  24. 5 stars
    Gorgeous! Love the look of this set! I would make a very simple, but delicious recipe my family loves. Capellini with garlic, lemon, and Parmesan. Mmm.

  25. 5 stars
    What a gorgeous pot! Thanks for the opportunity to enter. The first meal I would make would have to be a seafood bisque, since the weather is turning chilly.

  26. I’d definitely try this recipe. With cold weather already here (38 degrees this morning) there are soups, stews, and many other pasta type dishes to begin making. Thanks fir the opportunity to own this beautiful cookware!

    I remember the 1st time I made fettuccine alfredo with real cream and not the abbreviated ‘low fat’ version… Oh my! what a difference!!! Gorgeous pot and so very versatile.

  28. 5 stars
    I would cook pasta, my wife would cook broth, and we would entertain the family with whatever else we cook!

  29. Okay seriously i would sit with it next to me on the couch for several days pouring through recipes. Facebook would see me chatting with it and then my wife would…well….she already thinks I’m nuts! Love it!

  30. What fun! I’m thinking a big batch of creamy, garlicky pasta with shrimp would be sooo good! You are going to make one of us very happy! The alfredo recipe you shared looks delicious too! Yum!

  31. 5 stars
    I do a lot of cooking. This Lagostina Martellata Hammered Copper Pastaiola Set would be so nice to have in my kitchen. I’d make my spaghetti with meatballs.

  33. What a beautiful pot and strainer, and how generous of the Lagostina company to give one away! It would be treasured for a lifetime. AND… I can’t wait to try the fettucine alfredo recipe, either 🙂

  34. 5 stars
    My boyfriend is a wonderful cook and the first thing I’d let him make for me in these beautiful pans would be spaghetti.

  41. I have a beautiful butternut squash sitting on the counter… might turn in into a gnocchi dish or maybe roast it and toss with cooked greens, bacon, and pasta.

  42. Chicken soup would probably be my first goto, now that the weather is getting colder. Beautiful cookware!

  43. I’m not sure it is the right pot for it, but I would learn to make a great carbonara from scratch in this pot.

  44. I would make a huge bowl of pasta primavera with bowtie pasta and rotini with my homemade garlic basil dressing and lots of tomatoes, snow peas, broccoli, and avocado.
